How to enable ACL with ZFS


Feb 11, 2011
I did a fresh install of proxmox with zfs as the root filesystem with 2 mirrored disks (raid 1). I am trying to use setfacl in a container but I get operation not supported. Is there any way to enable acl in a container? I am trying to run samba4 in the container and it needs acl support.
This fixed my backup problem.

I have a Proxmox installed on a ZFS mirror and wanted to backup a vm from a NFS share to PBS. But i wouldn't work in "Suspend" mode because my tmp Dir didn't support ACLs. Using this on my Dataset fixed the Problem
